Does anyone know of an app out there that will simplify making a call? I'd really like to just be able to tap my contact and have it call them.
Haven't seen any contacts replacement apps but I use ABCOrganizer (think it's renamed FolderOrganizer) and have a 'Direct Dial' folder on my home-screen. Just open it and one click and it calls, then upon returning to the home-screen the folder is closed. Also gives several other great features, def worth the $2 or whatever it is now.
You are right to be wary. There is much bullcrap. Be wary of me too, because I may be wrong. Make up your own mind after you evaluate all the evidence and the logic. - Mark Rippetoe
